Derby County Community Trust has partnered with Ingeus to deliver the National Citizen Service. NCS is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all 15 to 17-year-olds in England, that helps you build skills for work and life, while taking on new challenges and meeting new friends. It runs in the spring, summer and autumn, during school holidays. You’ll have a short time away from home doing outdoors activities like canoeing, abseiling and white-water rafting. This will be followed by skills-building activities and a social action project in teams which will help your community.


Our community coaches are on-hand to provide proper guidance to help participants find the correct balance of being a student athlete.
